Our Future Summer Sunday Schedule
On Sunday, June 12th, Pastor Merritt will be leading the last worship service until he returns from Florida Annual Conference and an extensive Summer Vacation. That Sunday will be Graduation Sunday and New Member Sunday. Afam Dike will be honored for his graduation from High School, and we will be celebrating new members to our church.
The Florida Annual Conference will be held this year in Orlando, Florida from June 15th through June 18th. Pastor Merritt will be attending along with Kim Floyd, our lay delegate to the conference. Please pray for our representatives and everyone participating at this important Annual Conference.
Following the Annual Conference, Pastor Merritt will be embarking on vacation from Sunday, June 19th through the Fourth of July weekend. He will return on Wednesday, July 6th. Pastor Rick Phillips will be available for emergency pastoral care duties during this time. You can contact Rick either through the church office or by calling 503-7933.

Giving our Graduates a Helping Hand
Please help us as we honor our Graduating Seniors by providing a little financial help in the form of a scholarship. Every little bit helps with the expenses of higher education. An anonymous donor has pledged to match the scholarship fund on a dollar for dollar basis—up to a total of $400. Just mark your check or envelope with “Scholarship” during our regular offering, or bring your contribution to the church office. May God bless you for helping our youth.
